    Sound the same to any of you? Or maybe I'm trippin (And no I'm not talking about the beat, but the singing itself, from the verses down to hook)

    My take on both songs, are that they BOTH force themselves on the beats and It seems uncomfortable for them because I've heard better from them.

    no, they don't sound the same to me... the one similarity is the "ohohohohohhhhh" ('1 thing' chorus) and "riiiIIiiight rIIIiiiiight... riiiIIiiight rIIIiiiight" ('get right' chorus), but that's a very small similarity

    i like em both

    I knew I wasn't trippin, cause apparently, the dude that produced 1 Thing, produced Get Right...probably wrote em both too

    amerie can sing..jlo cant...that in itself makes the songs sound completely different

    Are you even listening the songs? Listen to the vocal ranges on both songs, they're similar, especially how they're both trying to sing - I'm not talking subject matter, I mean, even LISTEN TO THE HOOKS, you switch them shits around, and you wouldn't even tell teh difference

    yes, i've listened to the songs and having similar vocal ranges doesn't make them sound alike... i can plainly tell the difference. the whole vibes of the songs don't even match... amerie is coming so much more energetic to match the cadence of the beat... j-lo's coasting along more.

    then again, i'm a kind of person who pays attention to detail and can easily detect and absorb nuance...

    hmm...I feel the same way.

    I can't stand Jlo's voice at all, and that song is on such a slow pace its boring. I just don't like her as an artist. Amerie's voice is nice, esp. her first album (that outro goes off as well as many others) but this song-as far as listening to it in my headphones-hell no-other than that, it's cool. The video is another thing I don't like.

    they don't sound the same to me.

    I agree with Brahman and I completely disagree with Blank-Page... whoever the producer is should do more work (assuming that he's new and hasn't produced many songs).

    Man I like both 1 Thing and Get Right...but I can't stand Crazy In Love!!

    JLO can't sing but for some reason I like a lot of her music.
